Last year we attempted to initiate a discipleship outreach work aimed at the next generation of small children. In the beginning we only had around twenty children participating. After spending some time away on deputation in South Africa, we came back to Mozambique to find the children’s ministry thriving with more than ninety children per week! Never despise small beginnings.
Eugene and Tina would describe themselves as “gradual” Christians. The Lord took more than 25 years to move them from “dead religion” to being full-on, full-time missionaries. By that time, both their daughters, Chantelle and Tanya were married and serving the Lord in their own lives. Their call was dramatic and clear. The Lord used His Word, (especially Isaiah 58, “Feed the hungry,…clothe the naked,…pour out your lives in a sun-scorched land”…) followed by prophetic individuals speaking in confirmation that left them without doubt. Their testimony includes suffering bodily harm for His sake. Eugene and Tina returned to the field after surgery to continue preaching the Gospel. They are currently involved in a new church-plant and discipleship of believers.
